In order to compete with Tesla in the automatic driving area, Xiaopeng and the ambassador have launched a high-speed automatic driving function. However, in terms of sales, Tesla has always been the leader of the global electric motor market; however, the high price of Tesla Automatic Driving (FSD) system hinders the popularity of the technology in mass consumers. Most of China Tesla Motors are only equipped with standard AUTO PILOT systems, which do not have functions such as automatic variability and high-speed automatic overtake.
Therefore, the domestic product new forces have been introduced, and electric vehicles with automatic driving functions began to attract more and more consumers. It is recently said that the ET7 electric car launched in 2022 will be equipped with the next generation of automatic driving systems, but its customers need to pay subscription fees for the system monthly. Compared with traditional car manufacturers, domestic product new forces tend to take more active technical issuance strategies to attract consumers to purchase their brands. For example, Xiaopeng Auto and the Akahiro announced that it will install laser radar sensors on the most popular models to improve the security and reliability of the automatic driving system in some cases. These initiatives will accelerate cost-effective laser radar solutions in the popularity of the mass market, and help new forces have achieved competitive advantages in the competition of Tesla.
